Replacing icemaker line

I need to replace my icemaker line (approximately 10 ft of 1 1/4" copper tubing). I've been told my current line, which is leaking, is a saddle system and that I need to replace it with a better line, costing about $225-$250. This price sounds high to me. Is this something that I can do myself, with little plumbing knowledge?

If the saddle valve is good and its the line thats leaking,just go to Sears Lowes,or the Home Depot and pick up a kit for ice maker hook up.It includes all the fittings and the new line and a new saddle valve,you could replace just the line or change the valve also.If this works you can do the whole job for less then $30.00.Good luck

Saddle vavles are not allowed by code, use a dule stop 1/2 x 3/8 x 1/4 then run you new 1/4 to the icemaker

Thanks for the responses. I'm going to head over to Home Depot in the morning to get what I need to do this thing myself. I appreciate the advice.
